I've always been interested in art; from drawing to digital media, I love it all. I started drawing when I was very young. Most of the time I drew cartoons, which I still love to this day. I've broadened my abilities and as I got older, I started drawing more realistic images, usually people. In high school, I was introduced to the world of digital imaging. I fell in love, because not only could I set my imagination in high gear, I could make it come to life.

Film has also been something that has fascinated me greatly. Story telling is a very important aspect in art, and film makes stories seem real. I filmed and edited my first independent film project in my freshman year at Northern for the school cross country team.
